Walk (176) Blue Cairn Stone Circle-Hill of Allamuc Circuit (Aberdeenshire)
This is a varied and very scenic walk through upland farmland and mature conifer forest onto the heathery slopes of the Hill of Allamuc, one of the rounded hilltops to the north-east of Morven, on the eastern boundary of the Cairngorms National Park. Particularly on the descent, there are marvellous views from on-high of the broad bowl of the Howe of Cromar, with its appealing patchwork of fields and woodland, protected by surrounding hills. At an early point on the ascent, in Balronald Wood, the route passes the β€œThe Blue Cairn of Ladieswell”. Surrounding the Neolithic burial cairn are the diminished remains of a large recumbent stone circle … πŸ˜€

Up on Hill of Allamuc today, the snow on Lochnagar and lying on the slopes of Morven was deceptive. At a balmy 11C, even at the top, jackets were off and the first butterflies of the year were spotted … πŸ’™πŸ¦‹πŸ˜

Walk (175) Kemnay-Place of Origin-Kemnay Steens Circuit (Aberdeenshire)
Set amongst an expansive farming landscape by the River Don, the busy village of Kemnay is an attractive place, making this a very pleasant walk, with a more rural aspect than you might imagine. The walk starts with a short climb to the unusual and striking β€œPlace of Origin” viewpoint revealing the drama of the nearby flooded quarry, and with a panoramic perspective on the wider landscape of fields, woods and mountains, particularly the Bennachie range. The route passes six of the nine β€œKemnay Steens”, with each of the distinctive and eye-catching modern sculptures relating to an aspect of the history of the area … πŸ˜€
